Kennel Block

There has been a significant reduction of kennels available in order to create a better work/life balance, so please book early as we cannot guarantee there will be space, particularly during school holidays. We will always do our best to fit you in, but this will not be possible once kennels are full.

We have several kennel blocks, all high specification & exceeding local council regulations. Each has its own kitchen / utility area which is kept scrupulously clean. There is a main gated corridor, with single and double rooms leading off.

Dogs have their own individual private room, or double room for 'families'. Each room is self contained for its occupant/s, with comfortable raised beds and bedding provided, and overhead heat lamp for extra 'cosiness'. This is individually controlled for each room, so temperatures can suit each dog. Walls are painted white, with insulated and sealed floor.

From this room, each dog has access to it's own fully enclosed private 'patio' area via a hatchway, which is covered over by ultra-violet inhibiting sheeting material. This ensures that whatever the weather, the dog can go out in complete comfort and safety.

Luxury boarding guests will stay in extra large kennels with no mesh doors, super plush bed & bedding, leather arm chair, toy box & room décor.

Each external run is extra large with tree, bench and water feature as an outlook.

Included in the luxury package extra exercise sessions in our courtyard with fun & games is in addition to our standard exercise programme.


We offer your pet a clean and healthy environment, and are meticulous in the daily cleaning of his/ her temporary home. Rooms, bedding, patio areas, bowls, feed preparation areas etc are kept clean and maintained to high standards.


We use Wagg complete meals as the dry food option, and we offer tinned meat for dogs that normally have it. If you feel your dog is 'tickle stomached', and a change of diet may upset him/her, or if your dog is on a Special Diet, you are welcome to provide your own food, clearly labelled for your dog. We will adhere strictly to your instructions. If your dog is on medication we are more than happy to cater for their needs, just let us have your full Instructions.

Love and Care

We also aim to offer regular stimulation and contact to your much loved friend during the course of each day, with plenty of special TLC. We have music playing constantly in the main corridor to help relax the dogs, and give them background familiar sounds. With daily regular feeding times, exercising/ play times,

grooming times, checking and bedding down times your dog will have frequent human contact, interaction and stimulation which not only ensures the physical well being of your dog, but also the mental well being. We love ALL dogs, and do our best to cater for all their individual needs and to ensure each pet remains happy during their entire stay with us. We have a vast amount of toys and treats again to cater for all needs.

Freedom of Movement, Exercise and Walks

All rooms have hatches which connect the inside with the covered and secure outside individual patio areas. This allows the dog plenty of freedom of movement during the course of the day.

Security is always a priority, and a secure safety corridor runs the full length to the rear of the patio areas.

The design of the kennel block ensures that dogs can go in or out at their leisure, whilst owners may relax in the knowledge that neither harsh sun, nor cold winds, rain etc will interfere with their loved ones playtimes, leisure or comfort.

We walk, play and interact with your dog in one of our secure paddocks, or on a lane walk. In addition, lead walking, or off lead ball-play (for dogs that are suitable) in the paddocks is undertaken morning and evening for exercise. There is also an enclosed courtyard with agility props.

Additional training can be arranged if required. This would be in addition to exercise periods.


We have a separate room for grooming, with specialist equipment. Daily grooming is part of the routine, unless otherwise requested.

If you want us to bath and dry your dog for you on the last day (or even clip their nails), that is an optional extra. We use non-allergenic products, but do inform us if you have special requirements.

Door to Door Service

For your convenience, and to save you time and heartache, we offer a door to door collection and delivery service to areas within a 30 min driving radius. Our vans are ex Customs and Excise dog vans, so are custom built with the safety, security, hygiene and comfort of your dog in mind.
